Shift up - go larger on front chainring, go small on rear cogs. Go faster with less rpm.
If you shift into larger gears on the RD, your RPM will increase and pedaling will be easier and faster. An RPM of 110 is pretty fast, are you sure your crank RPM were two hundred thirty?
FB4K - Every October we wrench on donated bikes. Every December, a few thousand kids get bikes for Christmas. For many, it is their first bike, ever. Every bike, new and used, was donated, built, cleaned and repaired. Check us out on FaceBook: FB4K.
Disclaimer: 99% of what I know about cycling I learned on BF. That would make, ummm, 1% experience. And a lot of posts.
